    LS1 vs STi challange

    There's a guy over at LS1.COM that says he drives a bone stock
    LS1 TA automatic. He been talking nothing but smack about WRX's and STi's. He said that he will smoke any stock STi in a drag race.
    He says he will even smoke one in a race up to 50mph.

    The guy wants to setup a race a Firebird Raceway in AZ. I was hoping someone with an STi in that area could shut this guy up.

    He first made a claim that no V4 could ever smoke his V8. He very ignorant.

    Here's the wed address

    V4? I havent heard of V4 before. Im thinking either your talking about Inline 4 or Horzontal 4 to my knowledge there isnt any V4s.

    Anyways on to the topic, This guy is just a typical domestic fan. I dont hate on domestic at all, its just not my style. There isnt any domestic car out there that I really like beside the SRT4. I think its a great car for its price but ugly. Its not my style, thats what ill say.

    Anyways, I live in TN. There are a load of domestic car fan. Some of them think all imports have 4 bangers, FWD, and 1.8L engines beancans. Now thats ignorance. Anyways, I would love to see the race.

    The sad thing is that if he does ever get walked by a WRX or STI he will never admit it or accept it. There will be an excuse for everything....

    Yeah, a debadged trunk isn't stock. That doesn't count. "I said STOCK for STOCK, read my post!"

    What a toolbag. This quote tops it off...

    "of course modified four cyl can go fast. but no STOCK 4 bang is going to take my car.

    no way no how. and i will bet ANY amount of money on that."

    I guess he has no idea that his car in stock form (stock automatic T/A) is a mid 13 second car at best and any stock STi with a competent driver can smoke him.

    On behalf of the competent LS1 owners out there, I apologize for anyone having to deal with that moron. I wasn't about to waste my time reading all 9+ pages of that thread, however...

    Shaitiger and I have made numerous believers in our Chicagoland F-body club about the WRX and capability of "just a 4 banger", so not all LS1 and F-body people are that ignorant. Hopefully this guy learns soon, or has someone sew his mouth shut and force him to type with oven mitts on his hands.

    Don't worry...we all know one can spoil the bunch...but I am honestly curious to see what his stock auto runs...my friends automatic and completely stock Mustang GT ran a 13.9 when they're rated low 14's...maybe he has a factory freak or some "free" mods or little tricks up his sleeve...

    yeah, thats very irregular. most stock auto gt's are running high 14's. a few freaks have gotten mid 14's but that quite rare.

    this guy is a joke... i didnt bother to go past the 4th page, but i hope to god that someone races and embarrasses this guy. him getting taken in an sti would be nice... but if some raced him with a VERY stock looking civic hatch... but had B18c1 with turbo!!! that would be great

    That guy is complete idiot.

    Unless he's running low low 13s in his stock A4, he's going to get owned if the guy in the STi is an above average driver. Otherwise, it will be a close race.
